Visited Cali recently and went in 2 occasions to Pizzeria Salerno at the Jardin Plaza Mall. One for dinner and sat outside and once for lunch in the enclosed, air conditioned room in the second floor. Recommend the latter. Less noise and heat comfort level improved considerably. The restaurant is at one of the entries of the mall, by the... More

Italian food is ok specially the calzone pizza. Great italian tomato sauce. They dont work hard on atmosphere and their value could be better. The roasted chicken is also good if you want something different with rosemary

I've been there over 100 times throughout my life and always have the same quality and taste of their products. My recommendations are, Pizza Calabrese, ravioli bolognese, roast chicken with rosemary and garlic and pizza "pantalon" ( Calzone) with napolitan sauce, tomato cream. Also have french fries with Napolitan sauce.

Salerno restaurant has three branches in Cali Colombia. My favourite is located al El Peñon Square. It's a antique big house adapted to restaurant. Despite Salerno is very well known by your Chicken, Pizza Pantalon (pocket pizza) is really amazing. If you like juices, I recomend naranjada natural (orange juice).

The only fresh pizza in the world made in the trditional wood burning oven so you get crisp, delicious crusts! Their rosemary chicken is great as well as their home fries. One of the oldest restaurants in the city and the original one was only steps away from the airport on the highway to the city.

This restaurant is something like an institution in Cali. I remember from when I was just a little kid. The pasta choices here are good but the price is on the step side. They are in the short side in the bread department. I ordered garlic bread that is very popular with italian food and they did not have it.... More

Salerno has several locations across town - I have tried the one in the north of Cali on the Avenida Sexta B and the original one in the south, on the Calle 5ta. This place has been in the Salerno family for a couple of generations and their secret sauce is literally that - secret. Their tomato sauce recipe is... More

Their pizza is just great, and it is ready in minutes: you will find no other alike in the world. Their rosemary chicken is also spectacular. The restaurant has been around for at least forty years and they keep the same quality and stick to what they do best. The one by the airport was the first and it is... More

The best pizaa in town, wonderfaul past, marvelous roast chicken -- or maybe it's just because it was the first pizza place in town, so we all love it.
